Walking up the stairs in Nora's Amsterdam apartment is like walking into an art gallery. The home of this art director, mom and crafter is full with modern and contemporary art just the way I would like to see it in my own home. 

Nora and I met via Bloesem Kids ... when she wrote me about her love craft projects ... for the last year she has contributed many amazing and fun DIY tutorials. Last summer when I was in Amsterdam Nora and I met and she was just as wonderful as I had imagined her. 

But let's talk art / prints and where to find these kind of things online ... Nora gave me some info per picture and I hope you will find the info useful. 

Image above you see on top art by Dutch painter Bob Bonies and Nora bought it on the Dutch Craigs List called 'Marktplaats'. Below is a picture of Rome made by Nora her own mom who is a very creative and artistic person herself Nora told me.  

Take a little tour with me after the break.

On the far left art above by Nora's mom and below from her father ... yes Nora is lucky to have inherited some creative genes. 

The famous 'Kannen' are by  Klaas Gubbels which she found via Steen Drukkerij in Amsterdam. And on the right is a woodprint by Arjenne Fakkel.

Left top art is by  Robert and Jeanne Schaap but unfortunately not more info to give ... The little frame below is by Andreas Brandt  and Nora and her husband bought it a small gallery Spielvogel  in Berlin. The print with green squares is by Gunther Tuzina and Nora got it via eBay. But Slewe in the Netherlands has some of artwork in their collection too. 


Just a vintage barometer Nora got form a family member but thought painting it red would make more sencse ... I love how it turned out, you too?
